Journal of Applied Bioanalysis will be publishing a specially focused issue dedicated to Omics and Multi-omics analysis for biomedical applications. The Journal of Applied Bioanalysis invites the submission of abstracts on topics related to the special issue topic. A regular issue of the Journal of Applied Bioanalysis will publish not selected papers for this special issue.

Aim and Scope

Genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, and metabolomics have been a key player in biomedical applications for the last 30 years. During the last 10 years, the combination of these techniques or termed “multi-omics” is getting more popular. One of the major benefits of the multi-omics approach is, that it considers the whole biological system as a single source of information and obtains data-rich information from different Omics platforms. Thus, it helps to obtain knowledge that is more elaborated and comprehensive in comparison to a single omics platform.

This special issue invites both research and review papers in the field of Omics and Multi-Omics for biomedical applications. Papers devoted to biomarker discovery, treatment response, untargeted omics analysis of a biological sample are highly encouraged. The special issue will also cover reports of studies conducted by Omics-platforms for biomedical problem-solving e.g. infectious disease, cancer research, metabolic disease, and drug development studies. Moreover, studies describing data processing and chemometrics challenges with relevance on Multi-Omics will also be included in this special issue. All submitted manuscripts will undergo a double-blind peer-review and the decision will be provided within a few weeks after submission.  

Keywords: multi-omics; small molecules; infectious disease, untargeted analysis; chemometrics;

We welcome the submission of manuscripts for this special issue on following topics (but not limited to):

  • Multi-omics approach for biological sample analysis
  • Biomarker discovery, new drug development or baseline small molecules of the biological system
  • Metabolomics, proteomics study with an emphasis on the biological sample
  • Genomics and transcriptomics studies with the whole system e.g. blood, urine.
  • Chemometrics studied on the data analysis challenge of multi-omics approaches

Manuscripts submitted, however not accepted for publication in this specially focused issue, but meeting all required publication standards of the Journal of Applied Bioanalysis, will be published in a regular journal issue.
